Top definition
A sport that requires people to hit a small disc or Puck around with sticks while the players are on ice. The game was invented by Canadians and they tend to call it the best sport ever and anything american is terrible. But I'm American and actually like Hockey just as much as I like Baseball, so I'm a true fan because I like sports and not bitch about which sport is better or not. Sadly ESPN or any other sports channel doesn't want to show the damn game because they don't like it as much as Handegg, which is really a stupid sport.
Hockey is pretty fun to watch.

Hockey is the fastest paced most exciting sport in North America, but is also one of the least covered. The object of the game is to hit a rubber, circular obect (the puck) into a net while wearing skates. Thge game is played on ice with 5 players and 1 goalie on the ice at a time. Hockey was invented in either Montreal, Kingston, Halifax or Windsor, depending on who you talk to. Hockey is by far the most popular sport in Canada and expansion of the NHL in the southern USA is a long running pet-peeve of Canadians, most of whom can't fugure out why anyone would rather watch baseball, football or basketball. Ranks with soccer as the hardest team sport to master at the highest level.
Frank (Canadian): Did you go see the hockey game yeserday?
Jim: Nah, I stayed home and watched baseball.
Frank: (Breaks into laughter)

The best SPORT in the world! Well known for being played on ice with a hockey stick and puck.
Until recently, it was mostly played in the colder countries and far North America (areas of the US taken over by Canadians). However, America has yielded some of the best players and teams. See Mike Modano, Bill Guerin, and Chris Chelios. Also see the Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings.
Hockey has also moved into the deep south (areas that don't really know what ice is) and turned many towns into hockey towns. See Dallas, Atlanta, San Jose, Phoenix, and Nashville.
me: Did you see the game last night (could only be talking about hockey)
co-worker: Yeah, the Stars kicked ass!
me: You know it. I think we could be a Stanley Cup contender this year.
co-worker: Hell yeah!
Together: GO STARS!

The best sport ever, hands down. McGill University in Montreal was the first place to hold an organized hockey game between two informal teams in 1875. In 1877, McGill students established the first organized hockey team. It is said that McGill students founded modern hockey, creating the puck and the first set of rules. The first hockey game in the States was played at St. Paul's School in Concord, NH on the Lower School Pond.
Hockey, unlike golf, poker, pool, darts, hot dog eating contests and whatever other shit ESPN has recently decided is a sport, is an exciting and demanding game. While baseball games would put anyone to sleep, hockey would not.

Pretty cool sport popular in Canada, Russia, and the US. The Major league is the NHL, which has such upcomming young stars like Alexander Ovechkin and veterens like Jaromir Jagr

Seriesly though, Shut the fuck with argueing over what sport is superior then any other. Just because baseball is boring for you dosn't mean you can post up your OPINIONS on an Urban DICTIONARY on how much you hate it. Hockeys great, baseballs great, basketball's great, footballs great, just stop bickering.
Canadian: Baseball is so boring, there all fat n basketball so is a pussy sport n Hockey is so cool n it's dominated by canadians cuz the US is so bad n....

American: Hey, you know what's pathetic?

Canadian: What?

American: You

1) A sport originating in England, not played on ice but on foot, not using a puck but a ball. After hockey had developed in the British Isles in the late 19th century, it spread throughout the British Empire, largely due to the British army and this is one reason why India, Pakistan and Australia are so formidable (all were British colonies). Today, hockey is played all over the world by a variety of countries and is currently the second largest team sport in the world, just behind football (that's soccer to those who didn't realise).
2) A faster way of saying ice hockey.

Note - Both are good sports that need speed, stamina, skill etc, I'm just clearing up that it is seldom recognised that field hockey was the original.
1) John - "Do you wana go and play hockey?"
Matt - "Yea, I'll go get my shoes and a ball"
2) Jimmy - "Do u wana play hockey?"
Billy - "Yea, I'll go and get my skates and a puck"
